Some damning facts about the school reform movement

Tony Bennett says his grade change helped 13 schools but
what he doesn’t mention is 12 of them were charter schools and one was a
virtual school. He also doesn’t mention that two public schools were in the
same boat as his beloved charter school was in the year before and he didn’t
lift a finger to help them.
I guess he expects us to just believe it is coincidence that
Bennett received 130 thousand dollars from the operator of Christel house.
It also never came up that his wife accepted a lucrative job
with a charter school outfit that he awarded contracts to.
Finally about Bennett anyways, does an innocent guy who
believes he did the right thing really quit after just two days?
There is big money in education reform and unfortunately for
most of our kids this money is taken out of the classroom and put in the
pockets of hedge fund managers and charter school operators who coincidently
are big donors to REPUBLICAN lawmakers.

How many teachers were forced out of the profession
and how many kids were shortchanged because of their policies, so they their cronies,
friends, many time family members and campaign donors can make a buck? How many
more will be before we say enough is enough?
